Get those televisions off, there is a whole world out there, especially in the amazing state of Nevada!
Lake Tahoe State Park is a beautiful and natural oasis where the whole family can get some rays and find some adventures! There are fun activities for the family to do, so let's get started!
The park is particularly popular for picnicking, so why not pack up some tasty treats and enjoy a lovely lunch on the banks of the lake? You can spend a few hours enjoying some fishing - great for that bonding experience! A fishing license is required, but this catch and release lake is great to pass a few hours.
If you are an active family, you can't get better than miles of trails through the backcountry. The most popular is the Backcountry Trail which is 5 miles to Marlette Lake via the North Canyon Road. There is also a hike and horse trail which parallels this for about 4 miles.
Wanting some history? Then get cracking on the 4.4 mile Marlette Flume Trail which can be access from the North canyon.
If winter should be coming, don't you worry about that either because there are exciting winter sports for all ages. Lake Tahoe State Park is also a great place for kids to study the wonders of nature - after all, you are surrounded by amazing plant and wildlife!
If you want to expand your family day out, then get those tents and start camping! Camping is free once you have paid the entry fee, and there are three primitive walk-in campgrounds. Each site has picnic tables and fire rings so you will be able to enjoy those iconic campfires and tell great stories!
